Example of my Technique Brusier.m4a is a field recording I made on a warm October morning between a dry cleaners and a restaurant. A downspout was producing a crazy discordant noise. I think it was ice from a freezing up A/C unit on the roof, but I'm not sure. Kids and dogs wandered by wondering what the hell I was doing crouched down holding my phone up to the downspout. The recording became bibruser3_stems_OuiDecay-001 the rhythmic jangly stringy percussive cohesive backing layer of Junkie ....

The original Badaboom is 40 seconds long, apparently very short podcasts will cause feeds to crash, because that's exactly what happened to mine. :( So here's a longer version, weighing in at 4:44, ha, take that podcast gods :p.  That should be long enough for feed validators to accept. The original post is at http://fmonk.quasigentsia.com/archives/8331 and the original files are stored at https://archive.org/details/FranklynMonkPodcast34 Thanks for your patience and understanding

Badaboom: Thirty Stitches Franklyn Monk So, I sold blood plasma in order to keep this website going. And cycled back in the Texas heat, and passed out on my porch. Smashing my head on brick. Ended up with thirty stitches. A week later I get them taken out to find they “didn’t take” and I’m gonna loose a huge chunk of my eyebrow. I’m bummed about it, but I’m going to do it again as soon as I’m healed enough to donate. I’m serious about my art. Episode:...

I spent three hours on the audio. Three hours to clean up the original 21 minute noisy recording so that it didn't make you want to rip your headphones off. I was going for something less overbearing white noise, and more rain. At some point it may make it as a backing track to something. I also spent a lot of time on the video too, but that was mostly re/learning running bash scripts in Automator actions. And rendering, a bunch of time for my spunky little laptop to render

In case you ever wondered what it sounded like to walk a bike with a flat. Here’s sixteen minutes at the end of my last adventure. The walk was about two hours, and add another hour for socializing. I wish I would have recored the whole thing, next time!

Hello Good evening and welcome I'm Franklyn Monk I hold deep-seated and derisive political ideologies It's true! I'm an ally But I see no sense in preaching to the choir I see no sense in preaching to the choir So I'm gonna talk on somethin' Mundane Or prosaic Like sunsets The moon An owl Oh, the Moon isn't her real name Her real name to too beautiful Too beautiful too beautiful Her real name...

Here's a new track. I rushed through it last night. I'm experimenting with the generative audio equivalent of the literary cut-up technique. Did it by hand though, as I'm not as capable as I want to be with coding music. I developed the logic but couldn't figure out where to begin with coding it, I gonna look into creating Audio Unit plugins, that's probably what I need. In the meantime enjoy Recording Eight, it features 74 seconds of audio from a 21 minute recording I made this summer,...

I haven't been making these in a while. Here's one I created…I don't know when, a while back. Originally known as Frequency Out  because it was a mixed down backtrack of a larger project that I never got around to completing. Freq Out  made me snigger, so that's what I went with. Feel free to use it in your project if it fits, or just listen to it in the background while you paint, or meditate or write, or whatever. It should stay out of your way enough to concentrate, while challenging you...

Franklyn Monk Podcast Episode 19 Communion by Franklyn Monk “Stop! You must curtail your bizarre behavior,” says the man with the stick, “You really must,” he says adjusting his hat. But, he’s not talking to me, he’s talking to the creature we become— in the stretch back to the first realm. “Adjust behavior and commiserate elsewhere,” says the fat man “You really must,” he says poking the creature’s chest. The creature, call us Communion, howls indignant turns back to...

“A Throne!” by Franklyn Monk http://fmonk.quasigentsia.com/archives/5542   “You, you,” he points at you, “You can’t be in my audience,” And collapses. There are no stagehands here To shuffle away his bones, “It’s a one man show!” He now understands his mistake, But he’s proud of shrinking The universe down to a man. Who does that? “The Artist!” he’ll inevitably cry And laugh because it’s ludicrous. “I took tickets too.” And he cleaned the aisles And he built...
